# Opening the Launcher Utility (Linux)

There are several options available to open the Launcher utility in Linux.

Open the Launcher utility using one of the following workflows:
• Open a command terminal. Use the absolute path to the location where the Launcher utility executable resides (for example, /home/user/2022.1/altair/feko/bin/feko_launcher).
• Open a command terminal. Source the script initfeko using the absolute path to . /home/user/2022.1/altair/feko/bin/feko_launcher. Type feko_launcher and press Enter.
Note: Take note that sourcing a script requires a dot (".") followed by a space (" ") and then the path to initfeko in order for the changes to be applied to the current shell and not a sub-shell.
